I just looked at the webpage for The Farm in Racine WI, and I'm amazed. An honest-to-goodness Red Barn in 2009, in everything but name. Will wonders never cease! Glad I found out about this before my scheduled drive up to Milwaukee later this month; I'm definitely going to make that short detour into Racine on the way home. I'll let y'all know what I find.

      Interesting.  I rarely get over to the Racine area but this might be a nice destination for a summer Saturday drive.

            I went to a restaurant called Red Barn a couple of months ago in Montrose, Colorado.  I took a picture:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/14052527@N04/3960307689/

            I wonder if that's the same outfit!

              There was one in Mt View, Calif.  I'm pretty sure the Barn Buster came before the Big Mac.

                There was a Red Barn near the Michigan State campus in East Lansing.  All the fast food chains were represented but Big Barn was ahead of the curve in many ways: First with indoor seating.  First with super-burgers (Big Barney and Barn Buster).  First with salads.  Somehow McDonald's next door (walk up service only, only regular hamburgers and cheeseburgers) got most of the business.  I guess if people wanted to sit inside and have a big burger, they went to Elias Brothers, Home of the Big Boy.

                Burger King came in later with a poor location away from campus and a seating area and the Whopper and even they did better than BB (nowhere near as good as Mickey D).

                  OMG! I cant beleive I found this site..Hi all. My name is
                  Danny and I live in Raleigh n.c.. I remember me and my dad would go to the red barn and get a superb hamburger for about 15cents...It was located on wake forest road, I truly beleive it was on the corner of wakeforest rd and hodges st. Same barn building style but now it is a biscuitville breakfast joint. Should I take a picture and submit it for reveiw..would be awsome.
                  Thanks all.

                    I remeber a Red Barn out here in El Cerrito CA. Back in the late 60's. The building has been gone for quite some time now. How i wish they were still around, The best fried Chicken around an the biggest hamburgers around!!!!!!
